I've been using McEnroe potting soil for years now. That's also a compost based mix (I expect the Vermont Compost is also good, but I have a slightly easier time getting the McEnroe mix). I don't add any nutrients until, in most cases, around six weeks; and then I use a fish emulsion/seaweed mix from Saltwater Farms.
I don't sterilize trays and inserts between uses, with the live compost mixes; I just wash them out with plain water.
